I admit it, I am tempted by this fragrance mini because it is so darn cute. However, I am picky about my fragrances and I don't want to get it if I won't like both the sent and the bottle. To complicate matters, there is no way I will get to a store to smell it before the 23rd, so I am relying on BT to help me out. I have read the description and reviews and it sounds promising. I was hoping that someone could compare it to D&G The One or a similar fragrance. The One is my signature fragrance -- I love how it is a lovely floral with warm vanilla tones. I am hoping that Anna Sui La Vie De Bohème is something similar, but it also has some fruity notes, so I am not sure how that plays into it. Is to too fruity? Can you get the vanilla warm note? Is it more floral? Any help is appreciated!
Which fragrances have you bought or want to buy and/or or not bought because of a sample you received? Would buy: Dolce & Gabbana - The One. Got this recently as a sample and love it. Really good staying power but not an overpowering scent. Dolce & Gabbana - Intense. Guerlain - La Petite Robe Noire. Dior - like pretty much all of them. Won't buy: Escada - Especailly Escada. Didn't like it on me. Marc Jacobs - all of them. I like most of them but they do not last on me. I really liked Dot and Daisy but they just don't last at all. Atelier Colgne - Orange Sanguine. I liked the orange scent of it in the bottle but on me it smells like potpourri . Prada - Prada Candy. Loved it but it doesn't last on me. Clean - all of them. Smell too much like household products to me. Marchesa - Marchesa Parfum D'Extase. Didn't like it on me.
Hello ladies! I was thinking about perfumes and scents I really enjoy and was wondering what some of your favorite scents are! I'd love to hear what your thoughts are. I personally am a fan of perfumes with vanilla and citrusy notes. Florals I can find enjoyable too but sometimes they can be overpowering. Edit: Some people have been asking me what some of my favorite scents are. I don't really have a signature and find I switch it up, depending on the season and mood I'm in. I do like: -Clinique Happy -DKNY Be Delicious -G (from Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Girls line) -So This Is Love (Sephora's Cinderella line) -A Whole New World (Sephora's Jasmine line)
Okay ladies and gents, Megan here and I need your help! so I hate strong alcohol smelling perfumes they all smell like one thing to me. I'm looking for more of a lighter spray or even a scented lotion something along those lines that smells like something you would want to eat. For example, vanilla icing scent, candy, anything good and sweet but still fits the season. Any delicious ideas?
Im looking for some fragrances free from synthetics and chemicals. Lavanila is a line I'm looking to try. I also have some Pacifica, however I find they don't last very long. Are there any good quality perfumes anyone could recommend to me? My favourite fragrances are fruity, sweet, and/or candy like.
Years and years ago (like, maybe 2003-2004?) Sephora had a house brand line of perfumes. Included in that was a scent called "peony". I LOVED it- does anyone know of something similar, or even remember this being a thing?
Is anyone else giving, receiving, asking or wishing for fragrance for holiday gifts? I received a bottle of Shalimar early but I've also been thinking of hitting the after-Christmas sales and picking up some of the nostalgic fragrances I've liked in my past, just to wear occasionally...
Would you suggest Marc Jacobs Dot or Daisy Eau So Fresh? I'm searching for a new perfume and I'm really interested in a Marc Jacobs scent. I'm a college freshman, so I don't want to smell too mature for my age. Thanks for the help!
Since I'm very allergic, I'm lost in the world of perfume. But I thought I would take advantage of all the promo minis, sets, and other cool stuff Sephora has going on this season for my best friend. She usually wears Gucci Envy (which is OK, I don't totally love it but it's nice). I was wondering if anyone spotted any minis, specials, sets, etc. at Sephora or elsewhere with this one in it? Or, what about recommendations for other minis to try that are similar to Envy that she might like -- i.e. something in the Sephora 25 Days promo. I was originally just looking for a mini or something cute and inexpensive to add to her gift, but I'll take any and all suggestions. Thanks!
One of my main focuses lately has been to find a trio of perfumes that I can use day-in, day-out, regardless of my mood, the occasion or the season. I have already found the perfect floral scent for me, and now I am trying to look for my second scent. I don't know if there are any or many fragrances out there, but I'm looking for a "salty" kind of fragrance... I don't quite know how to describe what I'm looking for- hopefully you get what I mean. I want something that isn't musky, but is more on the softer, feminine but bordering on gender neutral kind of scent? Kind of like something perfect to pair with a chunky sweater, leggings and riding boots on a relaxing day out? EDIT : Now that I think about it, perhaps " cozy without being overall sweet " would be a better description for what I'm looking for?
Yeah, weird, I know. But I got a sample of Ralph Lauren's Polo Black from Sephora, and I like it! I think the trick is to wear a small squirt of it. But it smells really good, and it makes me feel kind of bold.
I LOVE, LOVE the smell of Victoria's Secret Clean and Fresh. The problem is, it's a body mist not a perfume. Their "perfume" is not a perfume but more a toilette spray and does not last more then an hour. Is there any perfume that is similar in scent?
Hey beauty lovers! I'm looking for a new perfume and I'm wanting something flirty, sensual, warm, and maybe a little sweet. Nothing too overpowering or floral. I'm about to finish a second bottle of Prada Candy. I love the scent of Candy, but the lasting power is below average. I've been interested in Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, but I haven't had the chance to sniff it just yet! Other perfumes I enjoy are: Dior J'adore Dior Addict Dolce & Gabbana The One Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy Ralph Lauren Big Pony for Women #2 Marc Jacobs Lola
So my boyfriend and I have been together for almost three years now, dating, and have known each other for five or six. He turned 21 back in July so I feel like we're getting further and further into that 'adult' world. So for Christmas I wanted to mix things up and get him things I know he likes [Video games, some custom stuff, etc] but also some things that are a bit more mature [The mini Art of Shaving Kit, though I bought it because I really like the cute little brush] and would like to get him a cologne as he's never had one before. So I guess my question is, do you pick out a cologne that you like for your significant other or do you let them pick on their own? I want it to be a surprise so I don't want him to come to the store with me to pick, and I also sampled two yesterday that I loooove but I'm not sure he'd like because well, this is new for him [though he likes whatever I put on myself so I'd like to think I can pick things that he'd like for him to...]. So I'm torn between getting him one of the two that I liked or the Fragrance Sampler and letting him pick something from that [though it has neither of the two that I like and it makes me a little sad but I can deal]. I mean no matter what I do Sephora has a great return policy so we could always come back and exchange it out for something else, but I'd rather get it done in one swoop.
Hi Everyone!!!! I'm looking for a new perfume that sort of smells like flowers. I tried the Tocca Violette and loved it, but the scent lasted about a half hour before disappearing. Is there anything similar? I don't like super heavy scents b/c they can give me migraines. Perfumes I've tried and liked (but not necessarily floral): Juicy Couture (This is a bit strong, but okay when I am out in fresh air) Princess by Vera Wang Very Irresistible by Givenchy Ange ou Demon Le Secret by Givenchy J'adore by Dior Light Blue by Dolce and Gabbana Amazing Grace by Philosophy (This was a bit weird, I would like it sometimes, and other times it would smell powdery) Any suggestions? -On a side note, how long do you have before perfume "expires"?
I love clean, fresh smells but they are usually too light and don't last that long. Any suggestions? I LOVE Cedar & Citrus (D&G LB) but it doesn't last longer than an hour on me and you can't really tell that i'm wearing perfume.
I just received my sampler. I think it's a great set & a fabulous buy. I tried them all. Husband has already said he doesn't like Tocca & can't smell Viva La Juicy much on me. That eliminates 2 for the full size. I thought the ones he would like least would be Boyfriend & Tocca.. I personally like the Viva La Juicy but it is very light on me. It will be a great summer fragrance. The hand cream is a nice bonus. If you have tried this set what did you think of the selection? Which one is /was your selection for full size? I'm having a hard time deciding between Boyfriend, Tresor & Aqua di Gio.
Hey, I really want a perfume to keep in my purse or backpack when I am out and about, but I get really paranoid that glass rollerballs will break. Have any of you had glass rollerballs break? Have you come across plastic rollerballs or some other alternative?
Anyone buy beauty products from Overstock? They don't have merchants selling on their site like Amazon or Ebay right? My mom's getting me SpiceBomb as a stocking stuffer & I told her I'd hunt down a good deal for her. I saw it on Overstock for $50 it's usually between $70-$80 for the 1.7 oz. I kept browsing on Overstock & saw they have 2 pack Clarisonic brush heads for $18.49, originally priced at $43. So before I tell her to get it from Overstock, I want to make sure it's real. Not only for the ingredients, but my family does not support fakes/knock-offs! We don't support child labor, human/drug trafficking, terrorism... I would feel so bad if I made my mom purchase it & find out it's a fake. I know you can normally find good deals on QVC, but this seems a bit too good to be true. Not to mention the picture looks a bit sketch.
I got a Michael Kors 'Very Hollywood' sample in a Sephora Favorites holiday pack a few years ago, bought the full size with the voucher, now its discontinued!! Anyone have a recommendation for a fragrance that is similar?
We have all seen the travel refillable fragrances- the take the cap off and spray into the bottle .However, there are a lot of perfumes that I can't take a cap off. When I saw how Sephora gives out its fragrance samples, I was wondering if there is anything on the market similar to this.
